Safe Pro Pest Control was voted to be a top 1% ranked exterminator by Angie’s List from customers in the Dallas, Texas area over the last eight years in a row, and still counting.
One of the big challenges in Celina, Texas is the issue of rodent control and insect extermination. This is because Celina, like many of the surrounding cities in Texas, is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters.
Technically, based on the Koppen Climate Classification system, the city of Celina has a humid subtropical climate.
This subtropic climate provides the perfect breeding ground for rodent populations to grow and flourish.
Most rodents do well living out in the open fields and gently rolling terrain of Celina.
Since the temperature of this city is around 75 degree Fahrenheit for most of the year, rodents are provided a great weather condition to forage, breed and multiply in population.
Almost all rodents such as a possum, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits and many types of mice prefer to live out in nature. Still, some mice and rats are problematic for residents in Celina.
Particularly, in the wintertime when weather conditions are cooler.
We always know when the weather is changing the summer to fall because Safe Pro Pest Control always gets an increased number of inspection calls for mice and rats when the weather changes for the winter.
Rats and mice will spend 80% of their time out foraging in warmer weather, including the spring and summer. As the weather turns cooler in the fall, they will make a shift to spending the majority of their time inside.
When they make this shift, if they can find an entry point into your home or office, they will take it.
In most homes in the Texas area, mice and rats and other rodents find their way into the attic of homes. For the most part, they can move around in your attic, largely undetected.
Since these small rodents are so cautious and wary of their surrounding areas they are tempered to move around quietly and keep a relatively low-profile. This is why pest control Celina Texas services are needed.
Optimum temperatures for Texas termites are 75 Fahrenheit to 95 Fahrenheit. Some studies show that termites will not forage in areas where the upper-level soil temperatures are too cold or too hot.
They are largely controlled by temperatures since termites in Texas are truly a cold-blooded creature.
The bad news about termites is that there are about 4000 species of them that are economically significant in causing a large amount of structural damage to crops, forests and buildings.
The majority of termites make their habitat in number from several hundred to several million individuals. Termite workers build and maintain elaborate structures comprised of soil, mud, wood, saliva and feces. These structures are called their nests and house their colonies.
Because Texas termites thrive on eating wood, they can cause significant damage to buildings that are not protected and other wooden structures.
Since termites remain concealed most of the time, they go undetected in most cases. Usually, the timber of a structure or piece of wood will show surface changes that alert a person of the presence of termites.
When the wood of a building is damaged, significant costs are incurred because the wood is the fundamental bones of most homes and buildings. And since these colonies grow so large, the damage that they cause can happen quickly and significantly.
One of the ways that you can tell if you have termites is seeing discarded wings that have shed or seeing winged termites inside or close to your home.
Having professional help with eliminating rodents in your home is a good idea.
Rodents are rather smart creatures. Perhaps this is because they have bigger brains that they are much smarter than mice.
So perhaps we might say the bigger the rodent the bigger the problem!
Not just because bigger rodents carry more diseases or because they are more potentially aggressive than mice, though that may be true also.
The reason is because the increased amount of intelligence that the rat has over a mouse makes it harder to exterminate.
If you have detected small footprints that are greasy and that look like they may be from a rodent, if you happen to actually spot a mouse or rat, or if you see tunneling in your attic insulation then you should not try to deal with the issue yourself but hire a professional exterminator.
You may also notice black droppings in your attic or other areas. These droppings will let you know that you have a rat problem.
You should also look for access points outside the home. Rats can climb up gutters or trees to get into the roofing area of your home.
If you have tree limbs that are up against your home, you have vines that drape down the side of your home, these make perfect entry points for rats.
Check the foam around your AC line outside to see if it’s been destroyed or chewed. If you notice that any of your lines have been chewed up, this lets you know you have rat problem.
You can look at the dust on the air-conditioning duct lines outside the home to see if there are any paw prints in them.
Did you know that 90% of homes in Texas have an opening in the attic that rats can find their way into easily.
The problem here is that rats are particularly smart.
Rats can smell not only human beings but the human scent on items that you touch. So just a simple process of setting a rat trap can leave your human scent and alert rats to your presence. This is due to the fact that rats have extremely powerful noses that easily detect the scent of human sweat.
If they smell your presence, they will not go near the rat trap.
If they get desperate enough then the leaders of the rat colony that are hiding out in your attic will send junior members of the clan to check the trap. In other words, the parent rat will send their own offspring to check the trap for food to save their own hide.
This is just one of the reasons we think so negatively about rats.
Besides this, since rats are so wary of their environment, they will likely not go near the rat trap since they will notice that it wasn’t there before.
Meanwhile, you have an animal that is infamous for its breeding habits that cause a minor rat infestation to become a major rat infestation quickly.
Rats really like to mate a ton. They mate up to 20 times a day… A DAY! … can birth as many as 20 babies in a litter, who grow fast and start breeding themselves in as little as 3 to 4 months, and can crank out as many as 12 litters per year.
This means that every day you allow your infestation problem to go without professional service treatment, you risk the chance of a rapidly growing problem in your home.
Did you know Dallas, Texas came in at number 10 on the top 10 list of cities in the US to hold the highest rat population, according to a study conducted by Orkin, from September 2016 to September 2017?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are 10 diseases that are directly transmitted by rats and 15 they can hold, including Lyme disease, salmonella, and rat bite fever.
A most presumptuous house-guest, they are known to explore food, food preparation surfaces, and dish storage spaces. While they explore, they leave invisible drops of urine behind.
Rat urine can transmit viruses that we don’t know about to humans, says Dr. Merchant.
Though they did carry the bubonic plague, which killed 75 million people worldwide from the 1300s to the 18th century, it’s not highly likely that they will bite humans or that people will contract disease from them – though it is possible.
While we don’t intend to scare you, we want to make you aware of the challenges with trying to exterminate a rodent or insect problem yourself.
Our pest control Celina Texas service includes a 100% free in-home inspection and evaluation. This means that we will come to your house, perform a thorough one-hour inspection of every area in your home.
We provide a white glove service every time.
When we come into the home, our technicians will put shoe covers over their shoes so that we don’t track in germs and dirt.
Once we ask you a few questions, our technicians will move forward with performing a top to bottom inspection of your commercial or residential property.
While most pest control companies avoid this, we still get on 9 out of 10 roofs, because we know this is a major entry point area for rodents and pests.
This is important in performing a complete inspection, but most other companies don’t do it. The only time we don’t get on top of the roof is if we find that the roof is unsafe.
Inspections include a walk-through of all attics – given that some houses have multiple attics.
Because of how thorough and complete our inspection is, it takes about an hour to perform. Most of our competitors offer an incomplete 10 min. inspection.
We on the other hand, provide a full hour inspection which is why our inspection is valued at $180.
This service will be provided by a licensed professional that works full-time for our company.
You should also rest assured that all of our full-time staff members are insured, have Workmen’s Compensation, and are bonded.
For you this should provide peace of mind because if any of our technicians are injured at the site of your home and they don’t have workers compensation, you can actually be sued.
With Safe Pro Pest Control, you get a 100% risk-free experience knowing all of our staff and technicians are fully covered.
Beyond this, we perform drug screens and background checks on all of our technicians. This is particularly good news because this industry is littered with unsafe and uninsured workers who come into your home.
Since a lot of companies use subcontractors to do the work, many homeowners experience service provided by subcontractors who don’t necessarily have proper insurances, bonding, workers compensation, training and a clean background.
Even though our inspection is valued at $180, but we provide it absolutely free.
